Have you heard people saying, “The eyes are the windows to the soul”?
Oh! I have heard people say this so many times.
I have come to a point where I hate when people say this to me. It is super cliché.
But, also very true.
When we look into someone’s eyes, we are seeing so much more than what is apparent to us. But do we really see the soul?
Ancient Chinese believed that we don’t see the person’s soul but actually we see their heart. Also, the science of face reading began in the Ancient China as a branch of the Chinese Medicine. Face was a tool to identify the health of the other person by observing the patterns and features of the other person. The face was used to even know about the personal wants and thoughts and obviously the psychological states as well.
Even more interesting is the idea that Chinese thought that heart was the centre of our life and it is basically the reason we are alive and thus we can easily know about the emotional state from the heart. Even now, we treat it as a symbol of love and affection.
So technically if the heartbeat can tell us about the state of our physical being, the eyes can tell us about the state of our heart because they are deeply connected to the heart.
Thus, it was found that eyes were the windows of the heart and not the soul. So by looking at someone’s eyes you can actually tell two very important things about them:
- You can know how openhearted a person is if you look at their eyes. The eyes therefore tell you whether you can trust the person or not.
- Also, the eyes tell you whether the person is open to conversation or not and they also tell you what kind of conversation you will have with that person.
